Endocrinologist 's  Response

Hypothyroidism in pregnancy needs to be treated promptly with thyroxine. The cause of hypothyroidism can be due to anti thyroid antibodies or iodine deficiency.

This medication is relatively free of side effects and is essential for both mother and baby. It will improve the IQ of your baby and decrease the chance of abortion, Preterm labour, bleeding and infection in mother.

If you are in an iodine sufficient area no diet recommendation is needed, if not you need to increase the iodine consumption (Increase intake of iodised salt, sea foods, milk; decrease intake of uncooked cabbage, cauliflower and tapioca)

Hope I have answered your querry,
